Welcome to our Hideaway
A labor of love, Rouhi Retreats have a deeply personal inception story.
Caught up in a balancing act between career and family life, rushing from one project to another, the KL based Architect Sharifah Alawiyah Alhabshi couldn't help but wonder whether that's all there is to life. Hoping to find some answers, she headed to Langkawi and the rest is history!
The sun, the sea, the slow pace of life and this unique energy that makes Langkawi so special filled her with so much joy, she decided to build a small hideaway. Initially just for herself, then she added a few houses for visiting friends. But the sense of renewal she experienced while overseeing the construction, the newly discovered inspiration and the bursts of energy she felt were too profound to keep this transformational place all to herself.
And so Rouhi Retreats came to be. Cherished by solo travelers and couples just as much as by families with kids. Striking a chord with locals and western travelers alike. Some come with the desire to unwind, others cannot wait to spread their wings and explore. What keeps them all coming back is the sense of feeling alive and being in tune with their authentic self. It's certainly no coincidence that in English ROUHI means SOUL. Come and feel the special energy for yourself!
ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR DESIGN
Reflecting Sharifah's love for travel, architecture, interior design & visual arts, the boutique hideaway is an eclectic mix of 12 villas - some inspired by Moroccan architecture, some boasting elements of traditional Malay houses and others built in a local style that celebrates Langkawi's tropical lifestyle.
Set in a lush beautifully manicured garden with a pool, each villa has its own charm and unique atmosphere, with the interior design daringly mixing colonial antiques with ultra modern furniture pieces and vibrant art.
SHORT & LONG STAY
As the owner experienced firsthand, sometimes all you need is a short getaway, while on other occasions, your soul craves a change of scenery for weeks or even months.
And so, Rouhi Retreats welcome both - holiday makers as much as those who like to stay for an extensive period of time.
Situated away from the loud crowds, Rouhi Retreats enchant with privacy and a serene atmosphere.
And yet, near a roundabout with roads leading in all four directions, you can reach within 15-20 minutes all the main attractions and experience the island has to offer.
